First Lady [Candidate]

First Lady [Candidate]

The Democratic National Convention kicked off July 25th and ended with Hillary Clinton becoming the first woman to be nominated for president by a major US party.  Sanders’ supporters protested the convention, holding signs that read “Bernie or Bust.” Michelle Obama spoke on the first night calling Clinton a role model for the next generation. On night two, Bill Clinton described his wife as a “change-maker.” Democratic VP nominee Tim Kaine spoke on night three, as did Barack Obama, who ended his speech hugging Clinton herself. Non-politicians also spoke throughout the convention, including an 11 year old girl who detailed fear of her parents deportation, mothers of black victims of gun violence, a transgender delegate, actresses Lena Dunham and America Ferrera, and parents of a 9/11 victim. After being introduced by her daughter, Clinton accepted her nomination on the last night.
